t's the story of the San Patricios, also known as the St. Patrick's Battalion, Irish immigrants who defected the U.S. Army and fought on the side of the Mexicans during the Mexican-American War of 1846 to 1848.

They were led by Capt. John Riley of Galway, who didn't want to fight against fellow Catholics and didn't like the Protestants in the U.S Army. He formed a battalion of about 200 Irish men to fight with the Mexicans and against the United States.

Now sadly, many of the San Patricios were captured by the U.S. Army, and later some were executed.

They are celebrated every year in Mexico on St. Patrick's Day and also on Sept. 12, the anniversary of the executions.


We are the San Patricios, a brave and gallant band
There'll be no white flag flying within this green command
We are the San Patricios, we have but one demand,
To see the Yankees safely home across the Rio Grande...
We've disappeared from history like footprints in the sand
But our song is in the tumbleweeds and our love is in this land
But if in the desert moonlight you see a ghostly band
We are the men who died for freedom across the Rio Grande.

Interesting.

I think historically irish people like to fight against the big dog. We always seem to be on the side of the small guy or the people sticking it to the powers that be.....I had a gran-uncle who fought in the spanish civil war, ****ing bizarre!

Cool, I didn't know about that. So is Paddy's day's well known in Mexico?

Anyway for the fight, I'll be rooting for Duddy of course, but I dont fancy him. He's really lost his spark. If it was the Duddy from 2 years ago I'd say he could get it, but I think here he'll drop a decision by getting out worked and being too easy to hit.

hopefully john reverts to his old style of in your face brawling to beat on chavez jr constantly. we all know he cant do this at world level cos although having a solid chin he'd get busted up but dont think chavez has the power to discourage duddy


hopefully its short, bloody and wild. with duddy winning. arum and his pops wont look happy afterwards

I was about to suggest this aswell till I saw your post(obviously it's been explained since he's of Basque origin).

I'm surprised how many Irish posters aren't aware of the San Patricios.
